Set off on a jungle adventure like no other at Twycross Zoo, with over 150 different species including the four great apes. You’ll be swinging from the trees in no time!
Asian elephants, cheeky meerkats and Humboldt penguins are all waiting to meet you, so you’d better get busy! Creep below the treetop exhibit to visit the UK’s only group of Bonobos or see if you can spot your favourite colour fluttering by in the Butterfly Forest, all before trekking off for a spot of lunch overlooking the snow leopard enclosure. Phew!
With the biggest collection of monkeys and apes in the Western World, as well as rare Amur leopards, conservation is at the heart of everything Twycross does. Kids can learn more about their mission with the Keeper for a Day programme or simply take it easy in a huge multi-tiered soft play area.

Fantastic Zoo. My Nephew loved it. There is a bald Chimpanzee.

Love this place; try to visit every year. Great zoo with animals, and a really chilled vibe. Lots of picnic areas, and lots to do.
